SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 10 (UPI) -- The Broadcast Film Critics Association says it plans to present Hollywood filmmaker Quentin Tarantino with its first Critics' Choice Music+Film Award.

The "Inglourious Basterds," "Pulp Fiction" and "Kill Bill" director is to be presented with the prize at the 16th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards ceremony in Los Angeles Friday.

The Critics' Choice Music+Film Award was created to "honor a single filmmaker who has not only inspired moviegoers with his cinematic storytelling, but has heightened the impact of film through the brilliant use of source and soundtrack music," the BFCA said in a news release Monday.

Maroon 5 is to perform a special musical tribute to Tarantino at the event.
